Why is work experience important?
What work experience is available?
ICAEW has recently taking over as the chair of Access Accountancy, a collaboration of employers and professional bodies who are dedicated to improving access to the accountancy profession for students from lower income backgrounds.
The initiative is in its fifth year and aims to improve access to the accountancy profession by providing work experience to school students meeting specific criteria relating to their socio-economic background. By 2019 Access Accountancy had reached its target of delivering 3,750 placements to students from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
